Yes. I reserve the right to use the images in my portfolio and promotional collateral.

Working with Greg was amazing! He is super nice and laid back, but was also very responsive to all of our questions and ideas throughout the whole wedding process. He was very flexible about his packages too and open to working with our budget, which was great. Greg was very professional on the day of the wedding and was very good at blending in so that I barely even noticed him taking pictures! The photos came out great and we could not be happier. Plus, he was very affordable compared to other photographers with similar quality. Overall, we would definitely highly recommend Greg!

Thanks for the great review! I love getting compliments about being flexible during the process and unobtrusive during the day, as these are my two biggest goals!

This vendor is completely unresponsive. Nearly 40 emails and phone calls. Our wedding was in August of 2012.

For a year and a half now we have been chasing him for products and goods paid for.
We are still owed: 3 albums, one 10x10 and two 8x8 on heavy card stock.
Drive with all of our “high resolution” pictures
Custom case for drive with the correct date on it (printed the wrong date)
$50 in print credits
An apology

I think we would have gotten better service from a high school kid making a fifth of the money! I am so disheartened – I gave up for a while.

I really liked working with Greg leading up to the wedding and the day of. He seemed like a really nice person and now I feel like a dope. I am just so disappointed. We have tried so many times and have just lost hope. He doesn’t answer his phone, or emails. We now have missed two Christmases since we have been married to share our albums with family or friends.

We knew Greg would be our wedding photographer from the minute we met him. He was so easy to talk to and get along with. We loved the samples of his work and after meeting with several other photographers we knew we were making the right descion by choosing him. We loved the pictures and Greg as a person, he fit right in and he was great to work with. Everybody was very comfortable including us. We recommend him to all of our newly engaged friends! We wish Greg the best of luck in his career and would use him again if we needed it!lots of love....Becca & Gary

I got married on one of the hottest days of the year which, as you can imagine, could have been miserable, especially for my photographer, who had to run around all day capturing every moment of my wedding. But Greg never once complained and remained cheerful all day. His sense of humor shone through at just the right moments which I think put the whole wedding party at ease. My husband and I had had engagement pictures taken by Greg, and so we knew he was friendly and easy going, but also professional, courteous, and above all creative. And our pictures were ready when we got back from our honeymoon: A beautiful CD of digital images was waiting for us when we got home. I have recommended Greg to all my friends, although I doubt he needs the help getting customers, given his beautiful website!!

Using Greg as my wedding photographer was one of the easiest wedding choices that I had to make. I knew from the first meeting that we were going to go with him. I didn’t want the traditional or should I say standard wedding poses from my photographer so after looking through Greg’s online portfolio and meeting with him I was even more sure of my choice.
On the day of the wedding it was 102* degrees at best (Note to future brides July 22nd is typically the hottest day of the summer. I didn’t know that at the time) Greg showed up in his suite ready for action and didn’t complain that it was a million degrees outside and he had camera bags and all his things to carry around.
Working with Greg was like working with one of your friends you are instantly at ease around him. He was easy to talk with and down for any suggestion that you had for a group shot or pose. I would recommend any of my friends to work with him. It was truly and amazing experience every couple should have on their wedding day. Thanks a million Greg!

Greg photographed our wedding earlier this summer and everything went so smoothly and turned out so great! He was so professional and showed up dressed very nicely, which is often overlooked but was a big deal to me. He was amazing at making my husband and I feel comfortable and capturing us naturally, we had done an engagement shoot with him too so we were extra relaxed. The cost was a little more than we were originally planning on spending, but when we met Greg and saw his photos and beautiful albums, and learned that we got all pictures on CD (which was also beautifully done) we felt it was completely worth the extra spend. I've been recommending him to all my friends getting engaged!

We hired Greg as our wedding photographer and we were very satisfied. He was extremely professional and easy to work with. He did not impose on our wedding at all and had great suggestions for poses for our pictures. The pictures came out beautiful and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

GSP Studios rocks. Hurricane Irene crashed our wedding, and not only did Greg send an encouraging email about why it wasn't the end of the world that it could be the worst weather EVER, but he and his second photographer braved the elements with us to get some really unique shots of us and our wedding party around town even though it meant trying to work in crazy wind, humidity and intermittent rain. I love our pictures and am so glad we got some taken outside to document the weekend in all it's insanity! Greg was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process and was very responsive and receptive to pretty much everything we threw at him. The hardest part will be picking which pictures to order and frame since I love them all!

My husband and I booked Greg for our wedding on 7/17/10. Since our very first meeting, my husband and I knew we wanted to book Greg. His portfolio had a wide range of pictures and had a great variety of the way he processed certain prints. He told us all about it (most of which went over our heads), but to see someone be so passionate made us feel like he was the right choice for us.
After we booked him, he let us know we could contact him whenever we wanted to about whatever we needed to. This is such a relief to hear as a bride. My mind was always going a mile a minute and to know I could shoot him a quick email and get a speedy response made me feel like he was committed to our wedding, unlike a lot of my other vendors.
About a month or two before the wedding, I sent Greg a very detailed list of pictures I would like taken at the wedding. It was intense and it was (probably) over-the-top, but he wrote back saying that everything I wanted would be possible and seemed happy to get an idea of exactly what we were looking for. I am known to be a little too detail oriented, but Greg handled me, which I am extremely grateful for.
After I sent him the massive email, he suggested we get together about two weeks before the wedding to go over my requests as well as the day-of time line. He had some great ideas and suggestions and this meeting put my mind completely at ease.
On the day of the wedding, Greg arrived with all his equipment and was very nicely dressed. He got there around 11 for a 5 PM wedding. My husband and I decided to get the second photographer and he arrived around 2, which is when the guys started getting ready. When he arrived, he also brought a newspaper with him. I wanted a newspaper shot with the rings near the date, and the front desk didn't carry any, so Greg called his second shooter and he grabbed one on his way in. Very, very nice!
The whole day went so smoothly and Greg was there to catch everything. There were times that I could grab his attention or ask him to take a specific picture and he always did so quickly and professionally.
My husband and I went to Aruba for a week for our honeymoon, and when we returned home, Greg had already sent us a few pics and even put some up on his blog! It was so exciting to come home to some great shots that I could show the family.
There's one picture of my dad walking me down the aisle that Greg posted on his blog. When I first saw it, I kept thinking, "When was Greg standing there? How did he get this?" and, in my opinion, that's a great wedding photographer. He has amazing shots and an amazing talent, but he was never in the way and it never felt like he was too close.
I highly recommend Greg. I could not be happier with having him at our wedding or the pictures that I've seen so far!

Dear Future Brides,

Greg did such a great job at our wedding, I can't possibly recommend him enough. He was so professional and made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He never once asked us to pose a certain way or do anything boring and ordinary, he took us on a few short walks and occasionally asked us to stop and gave us a little direction to get some great photos. We were also very happy with the way he stayed in touched throughout our wedding plans, and had multiples meetings with us beforehand to ensure everything would go according to plan. His prices are great and I can't imagine getting anything so amazing for such a good price. It's definitely the best value for cost anywhere. Thanks Greg!

I looked far and wide for a good photographer for my wedding and then I finally found Greg and gsp studios.

His price was perfect and actually a lot less than some of the other photographers I was considering... and his work was just as beautiful, if not more. I was so happy with the nontraditional way he took photographs and how the day was documented perfectly and then he took special time to work with just my husband and I to get us some really great shots together.

I normally don't hang up pictures of myself around the house, but I've got one of our wedding photos up that Greg took, it's just so organic, I LOVE IT!!!

When choosing my photographer, it was clear upon first meeting, there was only one option, Gregory Schumchenia. Having a background in fashion and modeling, Greg was the most professional and exceptional photographer I have come across. Greg is fresh, creative, modern, young and hip. Our photos were exceptional, avent-garde and uniquely us. Very few photos were posed, as he just knew exactly how to capture each moment. What actually surprised me the most as we reviewed the proofs were just how beautiful even the still life photos of the flowers, place cards, and food were, every angle, every shadow was incredible.
